something that is more balanced. that is amazing. how the generations get this idea about -- when i was at college in the 1980's i assumed i would be doing this 70 hour weeks and have a fabulous husband and fit in a couple kids but no one talked about them very much. i realized after i had my first child it was not having it all. it was doing it all. it was a kind of drudgery and it did not work. tavis: does that leave you cannot have it all? >> we talk something -- talk about something called the new all. it is not going straight for the corner office or ceo of your company. not making partner by the age of 30. it is more like seeing your career as a way that you dial up and down. when you have young kids or perhaps elderly parents who need looking after or that committee service work you want to do, you may decide that is the time when you want to dial down your career. you can always take it back up and you might take longer to get to the end goal. you might not get to the top of your company. we feel it provides a balance in most people's lives. all the numbers show the majority
